Fifty Ways to Use A Card Box by Don Tanner

(c. 1969) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Details: As described in the first section of this book, you will see that there are many different kinds of card boxes, and they have been produced at many price levels. Therefore, we can safely say that almost every magician has a card box in his collection, somewhere. He uses it now and then to vanish a card or to produce one, and probably has never given any thought to its further possibilities .

Actually there are a great many novel uses for the card box in card magic, and many excellent ones which do not use playing cards at all.  Don Tanner has arranged fifty trick, routines, ideas, and suggestions here for your reading pleasure and ulti­ mate use of your card box.  To this, we have added another dozen effects by Earl Dancereau, who put the Okay Card Box on the market. Locate your card box and have fun!!!
